Free scoring Dungannon Swifts bagged six goals for the second game in a row to easily book their place in the quarter-finals.
The Swifts might have moved in front during the opening exchanges when a Douglas Wilson volley at the back post was blocked on the line by James McKenna.
Ally Teggart broke the deadlock on 25 minutes some 20 yards from goal after Cormac Burke found him with a cross.
Stefan Lavery made it 2-0 soon after with backpost downward header from an Andrew Mitchell left wing delivery.
And Lavery added a third five minutes from the break after intercepting a Steve Feeney header to take the ball round 'keeper Cameron Crawford before, a minute into first half stoppage time, Jamie Glackin blasted home number four.
The Mallards reduced the deficit a little ten minutes into the second half through Niall Owens when he beat Stuart Addis with a low shot.
However, Burke almost restored Dungannon's four goal cushion on 70 minutes when he turned a Peter McMahon cross onto an upright.
Burke wasn't to be denied a couple of minutes from time after tapping the ball home when Crawford could only partially clear a Terry Fitzpatrick cross.
Then, moments later, Glackin completed the scoring with a sweet strike from the edge of the box.
